#49: Commanded To Rejoice

Aired Friday, October 4, 2019   ·   10:00 AM CDT   ·   22 minutes

At the Feast of Tabernacles each year, Philadelphia Church of God members beam with joy—not just because the Feast is marvelous, but because God commands it! Understand how rejoicing at God’s Feast is an important window into your future. (At the 10:53 mark of this episode, I said that humans in the World Tomorrow would have their own plot of land, about an acre each, rather than living in big cities. I meant this as a vague statement—instead of living in dangerous cities, humans would be more likely to live spread out on their own plot of land. This was an indirect reference to Micah 4:4, which states, in part: “But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree ….” This says nothing about exactly how much land each person will own, so I was just speculating that humans would all have at least some space if they all possess a vine and fig tree.)
